Inverness Ice Centre to stage Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017 

The 2017 Loch Ness Knit Fest, which is expected to bring thousands of visitors to the Highlands, will be held at the Inverness Ice Centre this autumn.

The second Loch Ness Knit Fest, a celebration of crafting history will take place from 13-15 October. It is a festival for all ages which encourages attendees to become immersed in the knitting community for the weekend.



Heathrow Airport has been announced as the headline sponsor of the local crafts festival.

Ahead of the main event, Heathrow will host a number of pop-up events with Loch Ness Knit Fest vendors.

Heathrow have also sponsored a team of London based knitters who’ve been inspired to knit a mural of the iconic Inverness Castle, which will be displayed at Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017.

Last year, the inaugural Loch Ness Knit Fest attracted over 2,000 visitors from 20 different countries and provided visitors with a perfect excuse to take a weekend break in Inverness.

This year highlights include the bustling yarn based marketplace and crafting village, presentations and workshops delivered by tutors from across the world and evening sessions such as Ceilidh with Blazin’ Fiddles and Gala Dinner that are guaranteed to give guests a true Scottish experience.

Loch Ness Knit Fest was first inspired by another knitting festival, Strikkefestival in Denmark. Strikkefestival has been running for a decade and attracts more than 7,500 attendees from across the world to the small Danish island of Fano each year, boosting the local economy by more than £4million.

Heathrow director of communications, Nigel Milton said: “We’re delighted to sponsor the Loch Ness Knit Festival – it’s a great opportunity to showcase the crafting talents of the Highlands and to support local businesses. Last year saw the launch of the new Heathrow-Inverness route which has been a flying success and it’s festivals like this that will keep the route flying high and connecting the Highlands to the rest of the world.”

The Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017 is scheduled to run between 13th – 15th October. The full festival programme is available on the website: www.lochnessknitfest.com/workshops-and-presentations

Tickets to the event can be purchased via the Loch Ness Knit Fest website: www.lochnessknitfest.com/buy-tickets-for-loch-ness-knit-fest

Heathrow Airport are the headline sponsor for this year’s festival with additional support from other key sponsors including The Highland Council, Inverness Common Good Fund and Event Scotland.

Loch Ness Knit Fest are committed to supporting their charity partner, The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild and encouraging locals to support the cause by knitting: www.lochnessknitfest.com/charity-partner
